What Is Digital Printing?
Digital printing methods differ from offset printing (offset uses a printing plate). With digital printing, digital-based designs or images are printed straight onto a variety of fabrics, underlying layers, or surfaces called ‘substrates’. Desktop publishing or PDF files can go directly to the digital printing press to print on canvas, paper, synthetics, fabrics, cardstock, photographic paper, and other substrates. Digital printing machines can print on everything from heavyweight papers, folding cartons, thick cardstock to fabrics such as linen and polyester, plastics and other synthetic substrates. T-shirts are the most popular applications for digital printing services.
Digital Screen Printing
Since the printing is done straight onto the garment, both silk (or synthetic) screen printing and digital screen printing are known as Direct to Garment (DTG) printing. With digital screen printing, the design is created on a computer and printed straight onto the fabric or surface. Using CMYK water-based inks, countless colours and blends can be printed. All the colours go onto the printable surface at the same time in little droplets of hot ink that cool immediately. There’s no messing about with stencils or screen preparation. In some situations, it may be more economical to use digital screen printing, since one item or hundreds can be printed, which would be too expensive and time-consuming if done using traditional screen printing.
